A blend of adventure and mysticism make for the unique allure of Ladakh, also known as India’s Little Tibet, which is among the world’s highest inhabited plateaus. Situated at more than 3,000 metres above sea level, it lies more than 600 kilometres north of New Delhi in the Jammu and Kashmir state. Also popular as Moonland for its outlandish landscape of vast barren mountains, the bluest of skies and beautiful lakes that change colour during the day.
LADAKH, the land of jagged peaks and barren landscape is at once alluring and awe-inspiring. Hidden behind this harsh and forbidding facade is an ancient civilization and a captivating people. With its unaltered character and overwhelming natural beauty Ladakh beckons the more intense and adventurous of travelers. The awesome wilderness and magic can only belong to this great land of towering mountains and Buddhist simplicity. With the great Indus flowing right through Ladakh, the province is divided into Leh, the capital Nubra, Zanskar, lower Ladakh and Rupshu.
The many distinctive features of Ladakh are its uplands, craggy, barren cliffs and plateaus. Governed by a climate that provides about 50 mm of rainfall each year, Ladakh is cold and dry. A visitor, therefore, will be faced with a long and bitter winter of frozen landscape but yet very beautiful, and a short, hot summer when the precious glaciers melt. The Ladakhi festival, which is organized on a large scale is a regular tourist event, which is held in Leh every year. It showcases the traditional dances, sporting skills and handicrafts with a lot of pomp and fan fare, and should not be missed. Ladakh offers excellent opportunities for adventure tourism.
You can go river rafting in the highest location for the sport in the world along the 26-kilometers stretch from Phey to Nimo along the mighty Indus River. Ladakh’s high altitude and mountains make it an ideal spot for paragliding, mountaineering, trekking and even skiing. Besides the astoundingly beautiful landscapes and the alluring wide open cold deserts, the other most fascinating feature of Ladakh.
